Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Thiranagama - Tropical Beach House

4 En-suite Bedrooms With Direct Ocean Views

The Tropical Beach House is a true beachfront property superbly located right on the beach at Thiranagama just south of the centre of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, right in the middle of one of the most expansive and beautiful beaches in the South West of Sri Lanka. The beach house at Hikkaduwa provides you with a very comfortable base from where you can enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as surfing, diving, snorkelling, nature watching or just basking on the beach in Sri Lankan sunshine!

Watch the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, whilst having a fresh seafood BBQ prepared for you. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see the local fishermen hauling in their catch or a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Later on, perhaps take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife. Enjoy all the advantages that come with renting your own beach-front holiday villa in Hikkaduwa and take everything else at your own pace.

As I hope the image tour conveys, the views from the holiday villa of the beach and Indian Ocean at the bottom of the garden are simply gorgeous!

For the duration of your holiday in Hikkaduwa, Mahinda and our housekeeping staff will be on hand to clean as often as you wish and attend to your every need. They will happily arrange local tours, Ayurvedic massages, diving trips, BBQs, meals to be prepared or anything else you can suggest.

The Tropical Beach House can accommodate a party of up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms (with at least 3 couples). We provide bed linen and towels and can supply a cot, as well, if necessary. WiFi internet access is available throughout the beach house complex.

The ground floor of the Tropical Beach House has 2 air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms - one king-size double and one with twin beds - a dining room and a fully-appointed kitchen. In front of the beach house is a private beachfront garden with a swimming pool (9.15m x 4.58m), a very large shaded veranda and an additional outdoor plunge pool, which is ideal for relaxing with drinks whilst watching the kids splash around in the pool.

The whole upper floor of the Tropical Beach House is a self-contained studio apartment featuring beautiful direct ocean views through wide sliding glass doors, which lead out onto a large shaded balcony. It comes complete with air-conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen, dining table, king-size 4-poster bed, washing machine and an en-suite bathroom with hot-water shower. The Cabana in the tropical side garden is an air-conditioned bungalow and comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen area, an en-suite bathroom with a hot-water shower and a separate shaded veranda.

Although the beach house is offered on a self-catering basis, we can prepare meals for you and we won't be beaten locally on price! Just discuss your arrangements with Mahinda locally.

NOTE: The Tropical Beach House is rented as a complete complex. I do not offer individual room rates.

About Gavin Gillham

I first came to Sri Lanka in September 2000 and was instantly charmed by the people, their culture and the fantastically beautiful natural landscape. I used to split my time between Sri Lanka and UK but now have 2 young children of my own (Jasper and Isabelle) so just visit when I can.

As well as being my beautiful home and a fun source of income, the Tropical Beach House is my method of passing a little bit of Western wealth towards my less-well off local friends and in turn to their family and friends.

Gavin Gillham purchased this villa in 2002

Why Gavin Gillham chose Hikkaduwa

I fell in love with Hikkaduwa, particularly the Narigama area and this property is perfectly located in a mainly residential area just to the south of all that beach nightlife and activity.

What makes this villa unique

Sip an arak & coke, whilst watching the beautiful sunsets at our 'sundowner' snack bar or cool off in the swimming pool. Watch the kingfishers and birdlife that visit the garden or just kick back and enjoy the soothing spectacle of Indian Ocean waves crashing in front of you at bottom of the garden.

Sri Lanka is a magical place of ancient Buddhist monuments, gorgeous beaches, lush green vegetation, clear blue skies, sunshine and friendly faces. The beach house at Hikkaduwa is a great place to unwind, sample the local surfing and diving opportunities, and from where you can then start to explore this stunningly beautiful island.

Hikkaduwa is located 100km south of the country's capital, Colombo. The area is well-known for its coral sanctuary and the proximity of wonderful scuba diving sites to explore. With its unique beach culture, Hikkaduwa has long been the most popular diving and surfing area in Sri Lanka. In the centre of Hikkaduwa, a lagoon also creates a beautiful and safe snorkelling area. Further south, where the currents are stronger, surfing is the dominant water activity. The impressive coral reef runs just offshore and is populated by exotic fish and sea turtles that come ashore on this beach to lay their eggs.
